BALTIMORE — After tremendous industry response to the Danfoss Mobile CO₂ Training Unit in 2018, the unit will extend its stay in the U.S. to give installers, service technicians, and OEM engineers in the Baltimore area another opportunity to receive accessible CO₂ refrigeration systems knowledge and training.
As applications for CO₂ refrigeration systems expand, the industry must increase its competences regarding its use. To help address this growing need, Danfoss developed the Mobile CO₂ Training Unit in 2016. The training unit blends equipment and components for CO₂ solutions, hands-on training panels, and interactive learning modules with on-site instruction by dedicated Danfoss CO₂ experts who share their in-depth knowledge of the natural refrigerant’s properties and the opportunities and challenges surrounding the use of CO₂.
“Danfoss is a leading provider of CO₂ solutions and we encourage the use of the sustainable refrigerants,” said Hans Ole Matthiesen, segment marketing director, food retail, at Danfoss.
The Mobile CO₂ Training Unit will be at the Danfoss headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland, January 22–24.
The CO₂ solutions presented in the mobile training unit range from simple gas-bypass systems to more complex parallel compression solutions with or without heat reclaim. Moreover, the training unit introduces Danfoss’ ejector technology, which industry experts recognize as key in the evolution of transcritical CO₂ refrigeration. These ejectors have the potential to enhance the energy efficiency of their systems by up to 20 percent on the hottest days of the year, thereby solving a problem that previously limited the use of transcritical CO₂ systems to warmer climates.
Technologies for CO₂ refrigeration are still evolving to offer enhanced performance while increasing the ease of use. As these new technologies emerge, the mobile training unit will be constantly updated with new components, know-how, and learning modules to reflect these changes.
